An Aesop/Quotes

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

In each of our stories, we try to teach a little lesson or paint a little moral -- things like Mother taught: "Walk softly and carry a big stick"; "Strike first, ask questions after" -- that sort of thing.

Wheel of Morality, turn turn turn!

Tell us the lesson that we should learn!
I learned something today.
The promise of mystery, adventure, hidden clues, ancient set pieces, red herrings, diabolical double crosses and a thrilling climax that ultimately bashes us all over the head with a lesson about the importance of non-material possessions.

When all the world would keep a matter hid,
Since Truth is seldom friend to any crowd,
Men write in fable, as old Aesop did,
Jesting at that which none will name aloud.
And this they needs must do, or it will fall

Unless they please they are not heard at all.
Wow! Another valuable lesson learned from my adventures!
"And so what we have learned applies to our life today, and God has a lot to say, in his book! You see, we know that God's word is for everyone, and now that our song is done, we'll take a look!"
